It was the first to bet big on the eastern corridor of the metro and on the so-called fringe areas across the country.

Now, trusted developer Sta. Lucia Land Inc. has not only been reaping the benefits of being a first mover in these locales, but has also been helping spur economic activities in the countryside through its masterplanned residential communities, while providing Filipinos with more opportunities to live in world class developments. At the same time, Sta. Lucia Land is able to contribute to the country’s growth and nation building.

But its mission is far from over. Sta. Lucia Land continues to look for areas outside cities and urban centers where it can bring its expertise in creating neighborhoods Filipinos can proudly call home. Such a strategy has allowed the company to make its business truly sustainable enabling it to remain relevant and a top-of-mind choice for every Filipino homebuyer.

“We don’t want to just concentrate in the city and established business districts. We believe that to really make a change and to contribute significantly to nation building, we must bring our developments to the countryside. We believe that we are one of the pioneers when it comes to building outside of conventional locations,” said Sta. Lucia Land president Exequiel Robles.

“We have long seen the value of investing in and developing the fringes. I would like to believe we have the first-mover advantage, which gives us the opportunity to strengthen our brand not just in the city centers but most especially in the fringes. The satisfaction of helping bring progress and well-planned projects in the fringes is indeed undeniable,” Robles said.

Sta. Lucia indeed believes that building and creating something must not end in the cities, urban centers and central business districts, as evident in its portfolio of more than 300 projects comprising resort-themed developments, lake and golf communities, lots, townhouses, retail and office spaces, and condotels located across the country.

From Pangasinan to Davao, Sta. Lucia’s landmark projects have truly created a huge difference in the lives of many Filipino families and investors. Here are some of those projects.


In the land of scenic beach sunsets and great culinary delights, Sta. Lucia currently offers Nasacosta Resort & Residences, which champions the ultimate resort lifestyle enriched by the relaxing sounds and stunning sights by the coast as its name connotes. The name Nasacosta is a combination of the Filipino word “nasa” which means “at the” and “costa”, a Spanish word for coast.

Nasacosta—situated along a strip of carved beachfront adjacent to high-end developments—is composed of residential lots at The Ridge; condominium units at The Peaks; condotel units at Nasacosta Hotel; and membership beach club, The Sands.


At the lush and adventure-filled region of Davao, Sta. Lucia Land currently has 18 different projects, including Ponte Verde, Rancho Palos Verdes, Alta Monte Residential Estates, Ciudad Verde, Valle Verde Residential Estates, Centropolis and South Grove. Steadfast and optimistic about the growth in Mindanao, it has invested in Las Colinas at Eden.

One of its latest projects here is Los Rayos Lake Residences in Tagum, a 37-ha property inside the much bigger agri-tourism township called Hijo Estates. It boasts of a grand community clubhouse with its own resort-style pool, playground and basketball court, an entry statement by artist Kublai Millan, a lighthouse, a function room and its centerpiece the 4-ha lake area.

Home to the sweetest delicacies and the best tasting chicken inasal, Sta. Lucia brings you closer to the capital city with La Alegria Residential Estates, a lakeside community. This development in Silay City is some 30 minutes away on wheels from the center of Bacolod City and a mere 10 or so minutes from both Silay proper and the international airport.

Ideally built for the Negrenses, future residents can look forward to a convenient and relaxing lifestyle as it is built with resort facilities including a ballroom, courts, gym, pool and coffee shop among others. Go out a little further and you will readily enjoy Paradise Island’s pool, gazebo, picnic area and lighthouse.
